I couldn’t gather if the dude was a staple at the site or more of a freelancer.

 

If that’s actually his response, fuck him. He didn’t even try. 

he was a staple not a freelancer  I think he was over the nintendo part of ign

If you're playing the game yourself, and writing about your own feelings on the game, there should be no reason to plagiarize at all; this isn't a research paper. Sounds like the guy is just lazy. Good on IGN for firing him. 

 

At least with a paper you reference both during and at the end of your work

In these cases I don’t really fault the company. It’s not like they have some plan in place to do this, and they took the appropriate action. 

 

Yeah it's not fair to let one guy to taint the image of the whole company. I know we all might have our own grievances with IGN (hence why we have this site in the first place), but there are good people there that are honest with their work.

Bruh, part me thinks that it wasn't. I mean, it was SUPER generic. 

Hah. This event was the best thing that happened to the guy. Now he has even more subscribers to his generic youtube channel from people that love listening to generic reviews set to generic gameplay videos.

Seriously, wtf? It seems boring as hell to play a game, and review it by slightly altering someone else's review. ZZzzZzzZZzzz
